Established in 2007, ProMove UK Ltd manufactures and supply’s the ProMove sling. The unique design of the ProMove sling means it can be used to move an individual in a confined or outdoor location where a hoist cannot be used.
The ProMove sling allows an individual to be moved without being manhandled and with the least risk to the operator. It has been independently tested to carry a range of different sized individuals, from children aged 3 years to large adults weighing up to 45 stone.
The soft material and simple design means the ProMove is easily placed beneath an incapacitated person whether on the ground, seated in a chair or restricted in a tight corner. It provides good support, forming a bucket shaped seat, giving a sense of security for moving and transferring.
The strategically placed handles provide comfortable grasping handles to the front and rear, and can be operated by a minimum of two or maximum of eight operatives. This makes moving and handling controlled and secure, whilst at the same time distributing the load between as many operatives as appropriate thus reducing the risk of musculoskeletal injury.
So, if you’re looking for a product which offers a new alternative to manual handling, the ProMove sling is for you. It can provide the safest possible transfer in emergency situations, or can be a way for families and carers to move active youngsters when out and about, enabling them to get involved in many more experiences.
